Karen & Bill


For their outdoor wedding, Karen and Bill chose the scenic Gardens of Malmaison in beautiful St. Albans for the romantic setting and because it was the place Bill proposed.

The ceremony was held on the terraced lawn under a rustic floral arbor created by Jill Springer of
Flower Depot.  While guests were offered bubbles along with their programs, children were treated to a box of animal crackers … a perfect deterrent for restless little guests.
With their passion for music, Karen & Bill invited guests to sign a musical guest book … a guitar!

After the ceremony, the 186 guests enjoyed cocktails, including Peach Bellini’ s – the signature drink of the evening.   Hors d’oeuvres were served in the lush garden amidst cobbled pathways, a roaring stone fireplace and flowing

lighted fountain.After the cocktail hour, guests were welcomed into the garden tent for dinner and dancing.  The tent was exquisitely decorated by the team from Flower Depot in the French green
and chocolate wedding colors.  Green runners overlayed the chocolate linens.  Glorious
centerpieces of orchids and green hydrangeas were set atop tall pilsner vases filled with
orchids, and hundreds of lit votives created a lush, romantic environment.   Accenting the 
silver Chiavari chairs, each place setting included a silver charger and candy favor box.
